Maybe the scythe was visible to Walt, or not.

But it was definitely intimated that Mike saw it and Walt either didn't or failed to grasp it's significance. As Mike pointed out- "sometimes its good to have someone looking out for you" (or however he phrased it)

Mike throwing Walt into the car was hilarious. As was the look on his face before breaking up the Walt/Saul melee.

And that's exactly what I was getting at; it means nothing to Walt if he doesn't know what he's being protected against......therefore Mike should have shown him the sign and told him of it's meaning. Why didn't he, it just seemed dumb and a wasted opportunity not to.

Perhaps Mike was following Gus' directive not to use fear as the
motivator. Which brings me to that question. Why does Gus
not want to use fear?

That's a good call, I believe Gus did say that.

re: "Why does Gus not want to use fear?"

If I remember correctly Gus also said people don't perform well under intimidation....or something like that.

Yes Gus said: "I don't believe fear to be an effective motivator- I want an investment"

Also Mike/Gus seem to be extremely stingy with what information they share with Saul and Walt.

Gus is smart, he plays it close to the vest and that's why he hasn't been caught yet.

I rewatched. Mike the Henchman definately saw the scythe right when he opened his car door to leave after removing the bugs. Mike then looked up and down the street and told Walt that sometimes it might be good to have someone watching his back. Walt walked back into the house and didn't see it. Walt may have seen it at another time when he left the house, but we won't know because we were not shown any scene with Walt seeing the scythe or any scene where Walt seemed aware to look around for anyone following him. In fact, he was surprised at the end when he had the green light and the bag was thrown at him. Like he never suspected anyone out there was paying attention to him.

We started season 3 with the first episode called "No Mas"
Tonight's episode (#5) is called "Mas"
.
I think this translates to "more"

I still miss Eyeball.

Did you see how happy Walt Jr. was when Sky told him to ask for his dad to come to dinner?

I LOL at the sticky little chair Walt was sitting on.

I also like when we see Saul's office is not a traditional lawyer office,
it is like a round amphitheater with roman columns and "We the people" on the wall for decoration purposes, not a reminder of the founding legal principles it symbolizes.

I think they might sell pasties here on Amazon, but I won't look it up because I don't want corrupted quick picks.

Gus did have Walt figured out. Gus knew what kind of pressure to exert on Walt to make him fold.

Yeah this is two episodes in a row without the eyeball. Hopefully it will show up again soon.

How about that 5K splurge by Jesse? Was that club scene included to keep us from having too much sympathy for Jesse when Walt cut him out?

Alt9999 says:
Yes, Gus knew exactly what buttons to push with Walt. Walt blew off the whole ego thing about the product, so Gus went for the deeper issue.

That hidden stairwell behind the industrial washing machine was bizarre. Like something out of Goldfinger- or Willy Wonka.

stevign - thanx for reminding us of the Rules.... but c'mon.. !

What I am wondering about is the comment we hear Walt Jr. making at the opening of the dinner scene at the White's house. Something about "...you didn't say it was tofu..." and then " but she was cute....". Was he talking about his MOTHER???? Or, an anecdote about some girl (possibly one he is interested in...)? Anybody?

I, too, was impressed with the lab beneath the giant washer. Clever.

Re: Gus and Intimidation. I think Gus will only use intimidation and threats of violence as a last resort. And Walt thinks he is impervious to the same. A clue that he has rounded the bend for sure. He will ignore danger until it sneaks up on him in the last ep this season probably. I hope that Season 4 is going to happen. They just can't let such a brilliant show go.

Jesse and the $5K par-tay. It does change one's perception of Junkie Jesse. I am still waiting for he and Walt to have more scenes together. They are the center of the show.

Skyler: She can help Benecke with Walt's money, right? Of course she can. And she will. She should. Plz, Sky!

Hank: I have great pity for that man. He will get the crime solved or die tryin...

So nothing I said made any sense to you?

They're not rules btw, they're just a way we can follow what the heck people are responding to or who they are talking to. I would think better communication would be a "good" thing....is it not?

I believe that when Hank finally finds the RV it will be burning b/c Jesse and Walt had made up and Jesse has come to work in the lab.....I hope! Lets face it, Jesse and Walt are a team and the writers are just busting our balls.

Walt gave the signature on the divorce papers very easily after
that dinner. I was thinking how he looked like he wanted to hold
the baby and when he got the chance, he looked back and seemed
disappointed that he did not have an audience (Skyler) to give him
approval for his nurturing gestures. It was as if Walt gave up
at that point in trying to win over Skyler, because she wouldn't
play the game right and give him approval for his 'family man ' act.

re: Jesse and the $5K par-tay.
Hank is zeroing in on Jesse's crumb trail. I can imagine
Walt and Hank talking and Hank sharing just enough
info for Walt to go berzerk on Jesse for the trail that
Hank is following.

re: "I just don't have the time or energy to make sure I am doing it right."

Not being 7yrs old and understanding computers very well I can only tell you what "I" see and you can tell me if it's the same for you:

I read someone's post
Right below it it says: [Reply to this post]
I click on it
I write whatever I'm going to write
Then I click on [Post].
It's the fastest, simplest and easiest way possible.

* The other way actually takes more "time and energy"; you have to scroll down past "all" the posts and write a message in the [Add your own message to the discussion] box. Granted it doesn't take that much more time and effort to do it that way either but the 1st way I mentioned is right there in front of you when you're reading someone's post.

Anyway, I only mentioned it originally for people who care or didn't know how to post properly. Of course there are some who may know but just don't care. I'm not talking about you now but there are people like that.

I used to talk with a guy on another forum who would do that and I thought I would be nice and explain the other option so as to make things less confusing. He obviously didn't care that I had to read his mind as to if he was talking to me or others because he just kept doing it. Even when he would add my name or someone else's name to it you still had to figure out which of their posts he was referring to.

He was like someone who would mail a letter with just a name and a city attached to it and figured screw it, let the mail carriers figure it out. That type of arrogance, selfishness and laziness showed me that he didn't give a damn about other people and making "them" work harder so why should I care about "him"?

So that's it, talking about it any longer would make me feel like I'm beating a dead horse. ;~}
